100 Watt Light Bulbs Soon To Be Illegal


OK, now this is getting personal. Everyone of my familiars knows that I detest dim light especially dim overhead light and now I learned today that 100 watt light bulbs are going to be banned!


I told ya liberal democrats are sinners and love darkness -- those Gorebulbs positively suck! They are too dim!!!! They are expensive and they don't last as long as they are supposed to. God forbid you should break one then you have hazardous materials on your hands -- those things contain mercury! Well actually I have to appropriately attack George Bush for this one because he sign this stupid bill trying to appease Pelosi and Reid. This is ridiculous. These stupid libtards and their environmental crap are honestly going to cause me to go postal. I can't imagine life without 100 watt light bulbs!

UTS~Tucked into the legislation is a provision that mandates the phase-out of the 125-year-old incandescent bulb in the next four to 12 years in favor of a new generation of trendy, supposedly energy-efficient Gorebulbs.

I embedded that article because it mentions the legislation....good grief.

Do some research before you beat me up!!! The bulbs we have grown up with our whole lives are soon to be banned.

The article didn't say it specifically, but the bill referenced does ban all incandescent light bulbs, I think by 2012.

Well, CBW is right and UTS is....well, you know.

The article referenced states, "The new law increases the fuel-efficiency standards for passenger vehicles...requires fuel producers to use at least 36 billion gallons of ethanol and other biofuels by 2022...And it includes new rules and incentives to encourage greater efficiency in light bulbs and buildings."

There were numerous articles published earlier on the banning of the flourescent light bulb by 2012; "A Californian politician is aiming to bring in a law banning the sale of traditional light bulbs in the state.

"California Assemblyman Lloyd Levine wants incandescent light bulbs banned by 2012, in favour of energy-saving fluorescent lights."

G W Bush DID indeed sign onto that daffy legislation.

CBW is also right that the new (Gore bulbs) contain high levels of mercury, which IS a registered hazardous material, making disposal a major issue.

AND they're not as efficient or cost-effective as initially thought.

But so long as the Gores are happy, so is UTS, right!?

What serendipity!

What a shocker huh.

I'm still looking for where it's stated that 100 watt light bulbs will be banned.

Any links or direct quotes would be nice.

A California assemblyman's statement doesn't not equate with Congressional legislation.

Duh.

Doncha just luv righties and their misinformation?

Bless their pointed little heads.

BWahhhaahahah, in spite of your utter rudeness you crack me up.

ummm, they have already been banned in Europe...it's happening UTS.

Here's a link but I'm sure it will not convince you but hey I really hope you are right because seriously I need the 100w bulb.

Wow, you are dumb as a post, lady!

Well do us both a favor and stop reading. But if you do a bit of research Sir or Madam you will find that I am absolutely on point with this post.

If you live in the northern cold climate then "energy saving" CFL fluorescent light bulb do NO GOOD AT ALL. In the north, energy given off by REGULAR 100W and other size bulbs actually keeps your heater or central heat from turning on sooner. Hazardous waste - this is what LIBERALISM has to offer.

Yes, it is a sad day for the world now that the government is making it illegal to use the most ordinary light - the same light that led to the creation of modernity!!!

I'm thinking of trying to organize people to help bring back the lightbulb, I'd love to talk to you about it -- I want to stop the government from doing this but I don't know where to start...!
